Podcast: The Electro-Library


The Electro-Library: a cabinet of curiosities for your ears.

A production of the Stonehill College English Department, Creative Writing Program and Digital Innovation Lab, Electro-Library is a podcast, a literary neural network, a philosophical space-time remix, a kaleidoscope of consciousness on electromagnetic waves. Each episode explores a single theme across time, cultures, and disciplines.

Created and produced by Jared Green, Scott Cohen, and Amra Brooks.

    Where is a memory? Is it stored inside of us, entire and complete, like a volume in a cellular archive, awaiting retrieval and rereading? Or is it a mosaic of experience fragments re-collected from bits and pieces of sensory input? Is it a feedback loop, folding now into then, truth into fiction?

    What do we do when we tell a story? What happens when we listen to a story told? Is storytelling simply an offer of entertainment or a deeply empathetic act that connects us to what it is to be the human animal? Is it a vanishing art or is it something that will always define who and what we are? And could infinite monkeys really tell a tale from Shakespeare, given infinite time?
